PORTRAIT

This energetic and dark performer made a fresh and unambiguous breakthrough in the early 70s, above all with his role in the two first Godfather -films, before continuing to typically play criminal characters who are pushed into extreme situations, such as in Dog Day Afternoon and Scarface. Pacino quickly became a fans' and critics' favourite due to his expressiveness and onscreen potency, even though he rarely stretched his performances to unaccustomed milieus or scenes.
